And SHE was the one who loostened the halter so that she pulled on the bridle instead. But what gets me is that she gave me a look and then looked at N and said sorry for your bridle and looked at me again, trying to make me feel guilty. And after that she tried to say that I tied the halter wrong and over the loop so it got stuck, but I didnt and thank God N backed me up on that.

this BO doesn't sound competent at her job, yanking on a horse like that? trying to blame her volunteer/employee? IRRESPONSIBLE.

that's what I was thinking, how stupid can you be?

Let's compare notes a little? I'm 61 and had cateract surgery the end of Jan. A week later, while recovering, I came down with Dengue Fever aka break bone fever that can last 3 months or more. At the same time, kicked by a horse and had an inner ear infection that made me so dizzy that I'd fall over sitting in bed. ALL at the same time. It really slowed my riding down and I'm still not in the saddle as much as I would like.

Have a good ride for us both.
Oh thank you :) Im doing better, my neck is really sore and its sort of hard to swallow but ill be fine.
Oh no that sounds terrible! I hope you get better soon.
